Sports and Smarts

Mariah Flores, Contributor

     Aiden Jackson is a triple sport athlete who plays Lacrosse, Football, and Track. He says he “enjoys all of these sports but [his] favorites are Football and Lacrosse.” Aiden’s not just an athlete though, he also keeps up with his school work and makes straight A’s. 

     When asked to share any tips he has, Aiden explains that “the main part behind staying on track with your grades is to focus in class.” He also says that he recommends for any athletes that they “stay on track with school, and never skip practice.” 

     Aiden got into sports in about 3rd grade and bothered his parents about letting him play until they finally agreed in 4th grade. Aiden’s a great example that anyone can play sports and still do well in school.
